Oh yeah...

Alright, what gives? You keeping track of my comments over the years here to spring this on me just when I needed it?

That movie is my favorite for my favorite band...I know, I know, the DEAD are, BUT those three guys, entirely because of G Baker as IMHO the BEST drummer of 60s style R&R, and Jack Bruce as my fav bass player (Phil's #2), and a passable lead player (Jerry IS #1)...

What an amazing band.

And, that song.

I thought you were wading in rather intelligently now and again with the discourse on this subject. BD and I style ourselves as "aloof with an oppressive touch of cynicism" so we have to hold back or the flood gates might open and we'd probably really piss everyone off around here...

I do enjoy talking about our take on Jerry and the boys vis-a-vis politics though...that was certainly a great deal of their charm.

it is a bit more of a non-sequitur i guess.... but i was driving home yesterday and started thinking about Jimi Hendrix and robthewordsmith's comment that he couldn't think of a more talented/amazing electric guitarist or something -- and this is a commonly held idea i think -- but i have never been swayed by this opinion.

while i recognize his true greatness, as amazing a figure as he was, and as talented a guitarist, i've never gained more than a passing satisfaction LISTENING to his music..... and so anyway, i was thinking, who rivals Hendrix on the electric guitar and was his contemporary? and i remembered back when i was 14 and my friends were getting into Hendrix, The DKs, Black Flag and King Crimson, i was totally enthralled by Cream, and the guy that played guitar for that band..... they used to right his name on walls and called him GOD, and i believed it.....

welllll..... until i turned 16, smoked the first weed, went to the first Pink Floyd show, and very soon thereafter, got a copy of LIVE DEAD -- at which point a new obsession was born..... interest has ebbed and swelled over the years -- but shit -- i've been in a DEAD RUT for a few years running now!! maybe it's time for a change?

all the people i know now only listen to METAL.... maybe i will give in and join them... or maybe just listen to KATY PERRY

(and honestly, i listened to that song about 15 times a week or so ago, well, maybe i just REALLY LIKE looking at her -- and then the song was stuck in my head something awful the next day -- i don't think i can ever listen to it again -- but if ANYONE can get me a lifesize KATY POSTER, let me know and i will email you my address)
